A wreath version of one of my metalwork creations inspired by the Cornish coast.
This seaweed piece is inspired by collecting real seaweed from Cornish beaches.
I often take photographs of real seaweed in layouts for inspiration for the metalwork. I will then sketch from the photographs or sometimes insitu if the weather is good!
The pieces are individually silver soldered copper or brass motifs with contrasting the colours.
Flux and heat create the interesting colour variations & acrylic the verdigris effects. The piece has been lacquered to highlight the colours & protect the surface.
SIZE: diameter 40 cm approx
Designed for indoor display but could be placed outside - the metals will not rust but would patinate gently over time.
My SMc initials & year of making are stamped into the small hanging tag. This piece is labelled 22-48
